    AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - An Augusta woman was arrested Sunday night for reportedly attempting to tear off her boyfriend's genitals. At around 8:16 p.m. on Feb. 11, deputies responded to a home on Alden Drive for reports of a domestic situation. Deputies spoke with the victim, who told them that while he and his girlfriend, forty-seven-year-old Melinda Dillashaw were sitting around the house, he told her to start cleaning the house, which he says was fully covered in animal feces. He says that angered Dillashaw and she started a verbal altercation, which turned physical when she grabbed him by the...
  • Commentary: Melania Trump is not a delicate flower or a victim (barf alert, feminazi hater alert)

    Nope, ladies. No more mulligans for Melania. Thanks to recent revelations of an alleged affair her husband had years ago, a bipartisan sisterhood is coming to the first lady's side. She has been defended and protected. Even a "Saturday Night Live" skit over the weekend gave her the closest thing to sympathy that merciless crew can muster. The truth is, Melania Trump is not a delicate flower or a victim. She is a grown woman, an immigrant who made it in a cutthroat industry. She is capable of tackling tough issues, of respecting the responsibility and opportunity she's been given....

    (Now that) President Trump’s refusal to call himself a feminist. I have high hopes that America is waking up to the farce that is feminism. “For the first time in decades, if not ever, [feminism’s] tenets are being publicly challenged,” writes Corey Schink for Sign fo the Times. It is long overdue, for we can now expose feminism for what it is: a war on men, on children, and on family. Feminism is not concerned with the needs of boys and men, nor is it concerned with the needs of children. In fact, feminism serves no purpose today — that's...

    Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life: Hillary Clinton is sending a message of thanks to "activist bitches supporting bitches." The former secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee made the comments in a video posted to Twitter on Friday by Huffington Post commentator Alex Mohajer.“Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks,” Clinton says in the video. “Thanks for your feminism, for your activism, and all I can hope is you keep up the really important, good work.” Off-screen, someone can be heard saying, “activist bitches supporting bitches,” which Clinton then repeats, laughing. “And let...

    If you haven't already, you absolutely must watch the encounter between SJW media maven Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News and free-speech-defending Canadian academic Jordan Peterson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcjxSThD54 "I don't think I have ever witnessed an interview that is more catastrophic for the interviewer," says Douglas Murray.He's right.If you loathe the cant, self-righteousness, and stupidity of the regressive left, then you'll love this train wreck of an interview. It's the most satisfying piece of poetic justice since the Comet came unstuck in that tunnel in Atlas Shrugged.Newman set out to ensnare and destroy someone whose politics she found objectionable -- but...

    It seems that I am a "Bad Feminist." I can add that to the other things I've been accused of since 1972, such as climbing to fame up a pyramid of decapitated men's heads (a leftie journal), of being a dominatrix bent on the subjugation of men (a rightie one, complete with an illustration of me in leather boots and a whip) and of being an awful person who can annihilate – with her magic White Witch powers – anyone critical of her at Toronto dinner tables. I'm so scary! And now, it seems, I am conducting a War on...
  • Iran's female protesters show how vacuous American feminists are

    Iranian men and women have been actively and vocally speaking out against their oppressive regime for the last few days. The women, in particular, have provided a sight to behold: Many are removing their hijabs, protesting the Iranian dress code, and literally shouting against Khamenei in the streets. ... Still, the overwhelming progressive response to these courageous women has been strange, if not telling. Hardly any self-proclaimed feminists have cheered on the Iranian women who are so boldly speaking out against a dictatorship that would rather see them dead than sans hijab. Conservatives and liberals alike are well aware the...

    Women are more likely to have been sexually assaulted by the age of 44 if they didn’t go to college, according to a new study from the University of Michigan. The study, spearheaded by sociology professor and researcher William Axinn, found that the risk of “experiencing forced intercourse” is more than 2.5 times greater for women who’ve attended little or no college. After more than six years’ intense focus on a purported campus rape crisis, Axinn’s study exposes the Obama administration’s Title IX regime for the elitist and politically-motivated overcorrection it was. Axinn and his team analyzed data from the...

    UPI ^ | December 12. 2017
    "Feminism," a top lookup for 2017, was named Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year Tuesday. News reports have kept the word in top searches the past few years, but the dictionary said it was looked up 70 percent more this year than last. The official definition classifies the word as the "theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" and "organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests." Use of the word spiked this year, due in part to events like the Women's March in Washington, D.C., and similar marches worldwide. The word itself became the subject...

    Radio personality Shavonne Patrice Owens, 37, says she experienced weight discrimination firsthand when she applied for a daycare job in Huntsville, Alabama, two years ago. Despite having all the qualifications for the job, Owens says her friend — a former employee of the daycare center in question (whose employment later terminated) — told her the reason she was ultimately passed over for the job was because of her weight. Owens, who was 525 pounds at 5’11” at the time of her interview with the daycare center, said that this incident “hurt for a second, just for a second… but I...

    Too much baggage. They think that Warren can win, she looks foolish and she's looney looking. Also these sexual harassment stories, some of them like Moore, Lauer could be witchhunts. I don't think America is in the mood for feminists right now.

    Alabama’s special U.S. Senate election is less than one month away and a new poll shows Republican nominee Roy Moore holding a solid lead over his Democratic opponent Doug Jones. In a poll conducted by Sky Research on Tuesday Nov. 21 among registered Alabama voters, the results show Moore with 46.7 percent support to Jones’ 39.6 percent. 13.7 percent of voters polled remain undecided. With a margin of error of 3.1 percent, Moore maintains significant lead over Jones, but the undecided voters could swing the election either way. When asked “Do you consider your political views to be more in...

    Eight women have accused TV journalist Charlie Rose of sexually harassing them — including groping them and prancing around naked in front of them, according to a new report. “It has taken 10 years and a fierce moment of cultural reckoning for me to understand these moments for what they were,” Reah Bravo, a former intern and associate producer for Rose’s PBS show, told The Washington Post. “He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim.” The women, who range in age from 21 to 27, described several incidents of sexual misconduct, including Rose groping their body parts and...

    RUSH: Okay. I just have one more thing here before we swerve back into the sexual harassment story. And I have to tell you, folks, there’s a part of this that is beginning to make me nervous, as an umbrella thing, not specifically. I’m just spotting a trend, and I know you have too. I’m sure I’m not the only person in this crowd. But you know, this business of sexual abuse is quickly approaching the same dynamics as racism in our culture. And just as racism is a horrible thing to be accused of, and depending on how it’s...

    Over in one corner sat Alice, a strong-minded 27-year-old who always said what she thought, regardless of how much it might hurt someone else. In the other corner was Sarah, a thirtysomething high-flier who would stand up for herself momentarily - then burst into tears and run for the ladies. Their simmering fight lasted hours, egged on by spectators taking sides and fuelling the anger. Sometimes other girls would join in, either heckling aggressively or huddling defensively in the toilets. It might sound like a scene from a tawdry reality show such as Big Brother, but the truth is a...

    In the post, Ms. Cole, a film producer, said that Mr. Whedon “hid multiple affairs” with “his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends” during their 16-year marriage. His explanation for why he had so many female friends, she said, was that “his mother raised him as a feminist.” Moreover, Ms. Cole called out his “hypocrisy” for “preaching feminist ideals” while using their marriage as a “shield” to commit adultery. In essence, she branded Mr. Whedon, the director of the coming “Justice League” superhero film, a fake male feminist. It’s a label that appears to be gaining cultural currency, especially in the...
